Chicken sausages are delicious and a great replacement to the higher fat and calorie packed pork sausage! There are some really delicious store and private company brands out there that feature a great variety of chicken sausage with additional flavors like broccoli rabe, sun-dried tomato, cheese and parsley. Chicken sausage cooks very quickly on the grill and tastes great in a sandwich with some grilled onions and peppers. My kids like a bit of light butter on their sandwich. I personally like a little balsamic vinegar on the bread and I always toast the Italian bread on the grill. I can always justify a sandwich on Italian bread by scooping out the center parts of the bread before grilling the bread and placing the main ingredients on the sandwich. So I am eating delicious crunchy bread and a little delectable chicken sausage and grilled peppers and onions and skippin extra calories from extra dough! Yummee!
For the onions and peppers, I slice the onions and season them with a bit of garlic powder, a bit of salt and pepper and grill away. I do the same seasoning for the peppers but grill them whole until the skin is blackened. I take the peppers and place into a brown lunch bag and let cool. The excess skin removes quickly from the peppers. An everyday tip - these peppers are another one of the great things that can be made and frozen to use later in things like hummus, pasta sauce or pesto. I promise those recipes will follow soon!
